back from Alaska

we had a fabulous time on our Alaskan cruise aboard the Zaandam. we visited Juneua, Sitka, Ketchikan and Glacier Bay. WOW. what scenery. our weather was perfect, sunny skies for the most part...Juneau was our only cloudy day but we made up for it by seeing a ton (no pun) of whales.

we glided by two glaciers in Glacier Bay.....watched calving (ice falling from glacier....accompanied by what they call white thunder...a loud cracking noise) spotted many whales, dahll porpoises, seals, otters, truly is a majestic area. everyone should see it at least one time !!

have lots to do today as we got home around 1am last was a long day on a cramped flight ! but at least we HAD flights....lots of folks were cancelled when we got to Atlanta last we consider ourselves very fortunate....the drive from airport only took 1 hour....! almost a record for us.

i will get back to making things soon.....and will post one or two majestic pix as soon as i download them and figure out which are the best respresentatives of Alaskan beauty. i fear that the pix wont do the area justice though !

it is nice to be home again.
